He closed his eyes, but didnt try to sleep. He knew that was futile. He had too much on his mind to drift away. Now hed realised when it was, the moment it happened, his mind went over and over the day trying to make sense of it.
It was the day she helped him paint.
He could still see her standing by the wall, rolling the paint across the expanse and reliving the tale. That was it, he realised. It was the moment she relayed the story of her lost love that he started to see her differently. Until then, there was something that was missing from Kim. Hed never really been able to explain it, but there was a vagueness of emotion, as though she had blocked off so much of herself that she didnt allow herself to feel very much any more. He supposed that, with all she had been through, that as natural. But although she had always said she loved her wife and was happy with her there was something that didnt seem right. It didnt seem to be that same depth of feeling that hed shared with Simon, or the same depth of feeling hed seen in other couples. It wasnt until Kim had shared the story of herself and Shaz that hed seen why.
She was your one true love, hed said quietly, wasnt she?
It was with a broken voice that Kim had whispered, Yes, as shed nodded slowly.
How many years had Kim had to keep that a secret, he wondered. It was a terrible thing to have to do. But then again, who could she tell? Or how?
